The MRAs are outraged.
Not because a violent misogynist killed people.
They are outraged that people had the nerve to blame their influence. This young man took to heart many of their philosophies. He was taught that if his perceived entitlement was not fulfilled, it justified his behavior.
I’m filled with such saddening disappointment. A huge wake up call was shot across the bow of all men, and many of us seem only concerned with deflecting blame.
This “outrage” post is stickied to the top of the forum. That is their top priority.
It does not occur to them that maybe their first priority should be to condemn this behavior—to say that using violence as a response to rejection is not okay.
Your mothers, your sisters, your daughters… they are frightened. Just saying “no” is a fearful prospect.
That is not okay.
But instead of worrying about them, all you seem to care about is not being blamed.
You say not all men are monsters?
Imagine a bowl of M&Ms. 10% of them are poisoned.
Go ahead. Eat a handful.
Not all M&Ms are poison.
